Explore the rugged, flat-topped peaks of the Chic-Choc Mountains in the Gaspé Peninsula of Quebec. Includes 25 peaks along the East-West running range. Most peaks have maintained trails to their summits; a few require off-trail navigation to attain the true summits. All except 3 peaks lie in Gaspésie National Park, mostly along the International Application Trail. Note: due to caribou protection, the true, highest summit of Mt Albert is off-limits; instead peakery places the summit at the observation hut.
